Nearly $11,000 has been approved in funding for the HenryCounty fair board, from the county commissioners, to help with capital projects and operation of the fair. It is broken down this way: $800 goes to senior fair, while $500 is committed to the junior fair program in HenryCounty. Another $2,000 is provided for county aid for the fairgrounds. And there is $7,500 budgeted through the HenryCounty general fund. Some is also authorized through the Ohio Revised Code for local county fairs.
The Henry County Commissioners will be applying for grant dollars to help pay for renovation of the courthouse elevator, through the community development block grant program.
And the HenryCounty board went into executive session to discuss pending litigation; but no action was taken.
